10 reasons to adopt a dog at Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days | thepupdiary.com

28 May

We were both adopted from local shelters (Ginger as an adult pup and Cubby as a puppy). Our mom always said she didn’t have time for a pup and didn’t have the space, but now she can’t imagine her life without us! Boy are we lucky pups she found us and took us in! If you have considered adopting, fostering, or volunteering, come out to meet all of the little New Yorkers who are looking for homes at the upcoming Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days this weekend on June 1 and 2. Below are 10 reasons to check it out:

1. The 2-day event features thousands of dogs and cats available for adoption for FREE! Yes, FREE! (Each shelter and rescue will have their own adoption policies and procedures.)

2. Over 50 shelters and rescue groups from the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals will participate so you will see a great variety of breeds, sizes, ages, mixes. (We prefer the scruffy look!)

3. Maddie’s Fund will pay the organizations an adoption fee from $500 to $2,000 per animal adopted. That means more money in the pockets of our local groups! Maddie’s Fund has set aside $4 million to help host these adoption events across the nation!

4. The adoption events on June 1 and 2 take place all around the city including two large outdoor events in Manhattan. Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm at Petco at 92nd and Broadway. Sunday from 12 to 5 pm at Petco Union Square. Heading to the beach this weekend? There will also be adoption events in the Hamptons, Jersey, and more!

5. FREE product samples will be available at the two large outdoor events.

6. You can save a life!

7. You can host cool events honoring your adopted pup — like the recent Rescue the Runway event at the New York Fire Museum.

8. Summer is the pawfect time to adopt a pup! Especially if you will have to potty train the pooch. If you have tried to potty train a puppy in winter snow storms, you will know what we mean!

9. It can change your life. You will have a new instant best friend, travel buddy, volunteer side kick, wing man, or whatever you are looking for in a dog. Your social circles will grow and you will have a fun new reason to get out of bed every morning. Not to mention all of the doggy kisses you will receive!

10. Did we tell you the adoptions are FREE!

What are you waiting for?!
